Every two years the Architekturtage, the largest Austria-wide event dealing with architecture and building culture, take place.

Ausstellung "Überschattung. 15 Minuten Susannma Frtischer, 15 Minuten Ruedi Baur"

Graphic arts and typography as an aspect of contemporary design is regularly a theme at aut – from exhibitions and spatial interventions to the co-initiated lecture series [typo]graphic.

Design has always been an essential theme at aut – in exhibitions such as „Ray und Charles Eames“ in 1998 or at lectures of renowned international designers.

Again and again aut animates artists, photographers and filmmakers to develop exhibitions that are free from the conditions of the art market or to present their works at lectures.
